Master Public Economics, Law & Politics

Leuphana University of Luneburg
Campus Full time Part time October 2017 Germany Lüneburg United Kingdom Glasgow Berlin + 4 more

The effectiveness and legitimacy of modern states is largely determined by the complex interaction of politics, law, and business and economics. Lately, in particular, these interactions have been affected. [+]

The effectiveness and legitimacy of modern states is largely determined by the complex interaction of politics, law, and business and economics. Lately, in particular, these interactions have been affected by dynamic transformation processes resulting from globalization and internationalization trends. This has led to the formation of modified statehood forms and new patterns of relationships between state, society and the economy. The Master's degree in Political Science – Public Economics, Law and Politics applies a theoretical and methodological, as well as problem-oriented and integrated, political analysis of these dynamic interactions. CONTENT AND RATIONALE Studies in political science at Leuphana Graduate School combine disciplines, which traditionally deal with the relationship of state, society, and business and economics. Questions, issues and approaches to solutions resulting from these intricately interwoven relationships are analyzed and treated from the joined perspectives of political science, economics and law. The focus is placed on the causes, background, as well as social and economic effects and consequences, of government action. Thus, the course aims at achieving a comprehensive reflection on the relationship between politics, law and economics by applying the tools provided by political science as a discipline, reinforced by interdisciplinary observations. This course of study is part of the scholarship program Public Policy and Good Governance of the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). Every year, DAAD selects around ten scholarship holders from Central and South American, African and Asian countries to come and study at Leuphana Graduate School. They enhance the experience of studying on this program by... [-]

Master Programs in Political Science. For experts on science & research, foundations, parliaments, civil service, associations, international organisations, non-governmental organisations, opinion research centers, political consulting, journalism, public relations New Educational Dimensions for the Management of Politics, Administration, and Organizations The public sector finds itself in one of the most important phases of transformation in the history of modern statehood. The following examples are indicative of this profound change: European integration; new global and regional interdependence; the call for more efficient and more citizen-oriented administrative management; debates about privatization, public-private partnerships, or debureaucratization; the introduction of Electronic Government; the crisis of confidence in public institutions, with issues concerning ethical standards and new forms of political communication. This doesn't just include public, communal, and international administration, but rather public enterprises, non-government organizations, non-profit organizations, and political authorities such as alliances, parties, and parliaments. The new generation of executives in the public sector need ever-more management and strategic expertise to prepare them for making complex decisions in the dynamic environment of politics, economics, and society – on both a national and an international level. ZU offers an innovative training and research program in the form of management-oriented politics and administrative sciences with international relations, in which social scientific elements of organizational research and policy research are combined with economics, management skills, and the most important elements of public law. In this context, the faculty of Public Management & Governance sees itself as a research and education laboratory which promotes problem-centered training for the... [-]

The two-year taught Master (Laurea Magistralis) in World Politics and International Relations is designed to help you analyse the major issues arising out of these processes. Whether you are aiming at a career in national or international public services, in non-governmental organizations or in the private sector, you need a multidisciplinary approach to grasp the key issues. [+]

Master Programs in Political Science. Our world is united and fragmented. Common links and challenges bind the international community together, while political phenomena are increasingly driven by regional dynamics and by conflicting national perspectives on security, wealth and identity. Globalization is still on the move along with processes of regional integration and the proliferation of new states. Military power is still concentrated at the state level, but is also becoming available to non-state actors. Technologies and information spread globally, and are variously transformed into forces for cooperation and conflict. The two-year taught Master (Laurea Magistralis) in World Politics and International Relations is designed to help you analyse the major issues arising out of these processes. Whether you are aiming at a career in national or international public services, in non-governmental organizations or in the private sector, you need a multidisciplinary approach to grasp the key issues. How are foreign policy and domestic policy related? Is regime change necessarily inconsistent with political stability? Under what conditions can power be tamed in contemporary international relations? To answer these questions, you need expertise in political science. Are contemporary international relations more or less conflict-driven than in the past? How, exactly, did the current international system arise? How did we get from Statecraft to “Globecraft”? To address contemporary challenges you need expertise in contemporary history. Is international law just a set of formal rules, or does it impact on the content of international relations? How are human rights promoted or enforced internationally? Are Mercosur... [-]
